It took Judge Mabel Houze Hubbard an unconscionably long time -- 21 months -- to reach a summary judgment in Baltimore city's attempt to reclaim funds raised by city officials on behalf of Artscape, a city festival. But her decision granting the city immediate custody of more than $700,000 in Artscape funds is undeniably the correct one. It also underscores the petty vindictiveness that created this needless dispute.It should be obvious to anyone -- and, indeed, it has been obvious to just about everyone who can accept the fact that William Donald Schaefer is no longer mayor -- that money donated to the city for a specific purpose couldn't magically be transformed into a private slush fund controlled by the governor's allies.

The event was conceived during the mayoral administration of William Donald Schaefer, who appointed Jody Albright, then director of art and culture, to set up a fund for Artscape donations.
